Although Google’s Open Source Lighthouse project was integrated into Chrome in early 2017, I had yet to explore and experiment with this feature. It was only after I accidentally stumbled upon it that I realized it provided me with new and interesting insights into my web apps.
For those unfamiliar, Lighthouse is a way to audit a webpage to get Performance, Progressive Web App, Accessibility, Best Practice and SEO feedback all from the comfort of Chrome. Go into the Audit panel in Developer Tools to test it out yourself. Make sure to run it in a private window so plugins don’t interfere!
This blog post is a reflection of what I have learned doing the audit on my portfolio website home page (https://jeremyshaw.co.nz/).
